"The ending is everything. Plan all the way to it, taking into account all the possible consequences, obstacles, and twists of fortune that might reverse your hard work and give glory to others.”

                    ---48 Laws of Power, Law 29

     COLLEGE ITSELF

 

STAYING UP LATE, OR NEVER MAKING IT TO BED

MEETING DIFFERENT GREEKS, GOSSIP FILLING UP MY HEAD...

PARTYING, CELEBRATIONS, TALENT SHOWS, PAGENTS, INTERVIEWS, HALL MEETINGS

KEEPING GOOD GRADES, WHILE ALL MY FRIENDS KEEP GETTING ACADEMIC PROBATION...

LATE NIGHT FIRE DRILLS, MICROWAVEABLE MEALS

WALMART TRIPS, ORGANIZATIONAL FAIRS, COMMUNICATIONS WEEK, TOUR GUIDES, SPRING FEST

LATE NIGHT SNACKS, RENTING DVDS, MOVIE NIGHTS, GIRLS NIGHT, FUN NIGHTS

SHORT DAYS, LONG WEEKS, LONG NIGHTS

ALL THE TRIPS TO SPEEDWAY, LET'S JUST CHILL MISSIONS

LEARNING NEW WORDS, LEARNING NEW DANCES

HEARING DIFFERENT ACCENTS, MISSING CLASS, TAKING RISK, TAKING CHANCES

GETTING A HUSTLE, SPLURGING WIT THE REFUND CHECKS

CROWDS GET HYPE AT THE GAMES, ESPECIALLY IF WE WON

BELLS, CHEERLEADERS, BASKETBALL FANS, FOOTBALL ROOKIES, A1 BAND

WALKING IN CROWDS, GOING CRAZY IN THE STANDS

FROM CHICAGO, DETROIT, AND EVEN FROM CLEVELAND, COLOMBUS, CINCINNATI, AND EVEN FROM DAYTON

THE GOSSIP, THE DRAMA, THE LOVING, THE HATING

PERFORMANCES, PLAYS, CHOIR, STEP SHOWS

AS I REFLECT ON THESE 4 YEARS I'M GLAD IT'S COLLEGE I CHOSE.

-POETRY BY RIONNA COOPER
